Yoga mats? Like Subway?  There's gotta be a better way,  IMO

There is. We speak about it here: http://www.lowoxygenbrewing.com/uncategorized/limiting-oxygen-exposure-on-the-hot-side-via-caps/

Though it's not a 1 size fits all solution, nor "cheap".
Thanks for the pics. Here I was thinking that I needed something to rig up something absolutely snug-fitting to make this worthwhile at all. It looks like I just need to find a cake pan that fits pretty close to the walls of my cooler, possibly padded with some aluminum foil to make the gap as small as I can - the goal being to mitigate air exposure rather than eliminate it entirely, right?

Mitigate if you are using SMB along with it.  If not using SMB elimination is needed( sealed containers, inert gases, etc)

Lets see...using an inert plastic to cap my mash??? Yeah, that's fine. I'm not eating it.

You aren't stupid enough to believe ANYTHING that Food Babe says...are you?

Sarcasm doesn't come across very well via text, does it?
